Adios Hotmail...Welcome Windows Live

Windows Live has been around for several months, but apparently it took a redesign complete with the old hotmail look to get the ball rolling.
"Microsoft had been tinkering with Windows Live Mail for months, but testers still weren't happy.

The program was too slow to load, too different and, well, just not like the old Hotmail it was intended to replace.

It was a painful realization for the more than 100 managers and developers on the project. In banking on a snazzy Web 2.0 application to try to catch up to rivals Yahoo and Google, Microsoft had dramatically overshot its audience."
For those of you still wanting the outlook-like interface of the now 'old' full version it is still available for anyone who wants to use it.  For users this is a good thing, you can chose whichever style you are most comfortable with.

I haven't been a fan of Microsoft's mail services. I'm sticking with my Thunderbird/yahoo combo.

Even though Gmail is by far my favorite..

I still use my old Hotmail account every now and then.. And I'm deffinetly sticking with good "Old" Style... I tried the Windows Live look, and it was too much like MS Outlook Express... which is so different than what Hotmail has always been..

So .. I'm Sticking with Old Hotmail Style...
